Disgraced Florida retiree Donald Trump is getting a dose of karma after repeatedly insulting President Joe Biden, who will not be invoking executive privilege to help Trump hide his seditious conspiracy from the House 1/6 Select Committee.
The committee has been tirelessly investigating the Capitol insurrection in which hundreds of Trump supporters stormed the building in an attempt to overthrow democracy and keep Trump in power despite him decidedly losing the 2020 Election.
Police officers who were there that day have already condemned Trump and his Republican enablers for turning their backs on them in their thirst for power. But now the committee has begun issuing subpoenas to key Trump officials, including former chief of staff Mark Meadows. The committee has also requested Trump administration records and has asked telecommunications companies to preserve phone calls and texts Republicans lawmakers may have made that day.
Trump, of course, is most worried about his administration’s records being released to the committee because they are likely damning evidence of his complicity to incite insurrection and overthrow the Constitution. As usual, Trump has been trying to assert executive privilege, a power he no longer has because he is NOT president anymore. So, it falls to Biden to make the decision. And given Trump’s constant attacks against him, it’s pretty hilarious that Biden gets to put Trump in his place.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed on Friday that Biden won’t assert executive privilege to help Trump keep his records secret.
“The president has already concluded that it would not be appropriate to assert executive privilege. We take this matter incredibly seriously,” Psaki said in a statement. “We have been working closely with congressional committees and others as they work to get to the bottom of what happened on January 6th, an incredibly dark day in our democracy.”
Trump can still take the matter to court, but he would most certainly lose. It’s time for the truth about Trump’s involvement with the Capitol insurrection to be revealed for all to see. The only reason why Trump would want to keep his records secret is that they would incriminate him. He’s not interested in protecting the executive branch. He’s only interested in saving his own seditious and treasonous a**.
